[Blind Gossip] According to plastic surgeons, the new trend in facial plastic surgery for men is to move away from more feminine features (like those seen on actor Leonardo DiCaprio) and towards more masculine features (like those seen on actor Jon Hamm).
In discussing this trend, a plastic surgeon from UCLA spilled some personal details about one famous actor who was unhappy about his look and opted for plastic surgery.

New Trends in Cosmetic Surgery for Men
Square jaws (think Jon Hamm, Michael Fassbender, Daniel Craig) are in, replacing yesterday’s pert-nose-and-dainty-chin combo (Leonardo DiCaprio, Zac Efron, Tobey Maguire).
“There’s less of a desire now for a conventionally beautiful white-bread face,” says Dr. Steven Teitelbaum, an associate professor of plastic surgery at UCLA School of Medicine. “People are embracing strong features like ethnic, nontraditional noses.”
For example, in lieu of full-on rhinoplasty, many men are balancing their naturally big noses with chin implants (which have recently spiked by 71 percent, according to the American Society of Plastic Surgeons) or opting to have their noses trimmed back. (Doctors can shave down the bone and cartilage with a file.)
“I did a rhinoplasty and a chin implant on a famous actor who had a monster nose and no chin. We left a bit of a bump in the nose, so it still looked like his, just a better version,” says Dr. Darrick Antell, assistant clinical professor of surgery at Columbia University. “No one, including the producer on his next project, noticed he’d had a nose job.”
